Famous quotes containing the word childhood:

    When you have really exhausted an experience you always reverence and love it. The two things that nearly all of us have thoroughly and really been through are childhood and youth. And though we would not have them back again on any account, we feel that they are both beautiful, because we have drunk them dry.
    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)

    The landscape of the northern Sprawl woke confused memories of childhood for Case, dead grass tufting the cracks in a canted slab of freeway concrete. The train began to decelerate ten kilometers from the airport. Case watched the sun rise on the landscape of childhood, on broken slag and the rusting shells of refineries.
    William Gibson (b. 1948)

    Pleasing illusion: “if my childhood had been the Paradise it should have been, all would now be well.”
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
